They say the right person will stay timeless : he or she will always be right for you regardless the circumstances. If that is truth, what can then be said about Orpheus and Eurydice, Winston and Julia, or Gatsby and Daisy? Was it predestined for them to commit to a lifetime of tragedy then?

” My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I’m well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He’s always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being. So don’t talk of our separation again: it is impracticable. ” – Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë
